Support for iOS in Qt 5.2 Beta
When announced yesterday ("Announcement of Qt 5.2 Beta":http://blog.qt.digia.com/blog/2013/10/23/qt-5-2-beta-available/) I tried to get up and running with Qt development for iOS.
After downloading and installing qt-mac-opensource-5.2.0-beta1-ios-x86_64-offline.dmg I could find the directories in the install path but I was not able to figure out how to connect and deploy to my iOS device.
Furthermore there is no project template for creating a application for iOS available, even after configuring Qt version, compiler and kit.
According to the instructions I found here "Connecting to iOS Devices Qt Creator":http://doc-snapshot.qt-project.org/qtcreator-3.0/creator-developing-ios.html , the device should be automatically detected. But there is no entry for an iOS device under Preferences -> Devices to be found.
What am I missing to get further iOS support ?
Thank you all for your help and best regards!
I also noticed the missing iOS preferences item when I was trying to set up the iOS support for Qt Creator 3. I stumbled across this post http://blog.qt.digia.com/blog/2013/10/23/qt-creator-3-0-beta-released/
thanks a lot for your answer. It helped me very much to solve this issue.
In the post you linked you can read the following:
Experimental support for iOS: Qt 5.2 ... (Experimental means that you have to turn on this feature in Help > About Plugins > Device Support > iOS.)
After turning on and restarting Qt Creator my iOS device was detected immediately and now iOS is listed as one of the supported platforms.
Thanks a lot for your help and best regards,
